2 customer reviews


Using your own choice of flower you will build up an extensive range of pen and ink illustrations that can be either painted onto fabric and stitched into, or printed onto fabric once at home.


For those wishing to bridge the gap between design and stitch. I will take you through a series of confidence building, fun and quick design exercises using pen, inks and watercolours and give you little tricks to loosen up your style.  You will come away with plenty of vibrant floral designs which could be taken further in your own textile work.  As long as your keen to experiment and happy to have a paint brush in your hand this workshop is for you!  See gallery examples of students work.

    A brilliant workshop with so many design ideas. I gained confidence in using different colouring materials and learnt how to take these designs further.
